At The End Of The Day

At The End Of The Day

  “One must wait till evening to see how lovely the day has been.” It is 6:30 in the morning Pacific Time and I’ve just had an evening moment. Funny, isn’t it, how one innocent little movement can unexpectedly stir one’s soul into awakeness and awareness. This morning it was the pool skimmer that did […]

A Curious Find In An Unexpected Place

A Curious Find In An Unexpected Place

  Though we now live in the mountains we don’t get out much. That is, we haven’t done much in the actual mountains since moving here as winter came and had a hard time leaving. It was a fine winter as winters go, but it didn’t do much for my longing to walk on a […]

When Everything Goes Right

When Everything Goes Right

  It was one of those dreams that was so intense I needed it to end. Sometimes you can wake yourself up from a dream and sometimes you can’t. I was able to pull out of this one but not soon enough! In this dream I was on trial and it wasn’t pretty. The sense […]

Be Sure You Bring Yourself Wherever Yourself Goes

Be Sure You Bring Yourself Wherever Yourself Goes

  That’s it. I’m meant to be a romance novelist. No more poetry for me, it’s all romance from now on. Well, if I go that route I should maybe start reading romance novels, which don’t interest me at all. Maybe I can write romantic poems. There are lots of those but never enough, it […]

Living On Bread And Water

Living On Bread And Water

  Imagine! Just imagine knowing, a deep-down-inside knowing, that there is enough of what you need, and more. Imagine watching the news and seeing the lack in the life of people and society, be it identity, care, food, belonging, and knowing there is more than enough to meet each need without fear of running short.

Live From Fullness In An Empty World

Live From Fullness In An Empty World

  Suddenly the word ‘Flourishing ‘ is in vogue! Numerous people have declared that 2017 is a year of flourishing and this word is now showing up everywhere. I’m delighted that ‘Poetry From A Flourishing Land’ is declaring a wider truth that is both here now and still coming! Forty years ago Jackson Browne, a […]

Got A Moment?

Got A Moment?

Get one! Just one moment, that’s all it takes. Ok, but how long is a moment? Depends, doesn’t it? When I tell a toddler asking for a snack, ‘just a moment’, it can mean seconds or minutes. (But not longer as a child’s persistence won’t allow for delay!) When said to a border guard as […]

The Amber Wineskin of Autumn

The Amber Wineskin of Autumn

  Realizing many of my blog followers are from the southern hemisphere and therefore headed into springtime, I can’t help but write about autumn, surrounded as I am by amber aspen leaves. This is my first Colorado autumn. Familiar as I am to the brilliant orange and then red of maples and oaks, to be in […]

The Hungry Harvest

The Hungry Harvest

  There’s been a revolution happening in and around us for a decade, one that has changed more about our lives than we realize. The Food and Water Revolution. Cooking shows of the past decade (in the USA) have taught us ingredients, ways of cooking and thinking about food our generation had not previously known. […]

The Expansiveness of Growing Small

The Expansiveness of Growing Small

Just back from a month in the States, it’s time to get back to blogging! We arrived in Ireland just in time to speak at a wonderful conference in Belfast this past weekend, so are moving slow on a Monday. Therefore my thoughts this morning are simple as I lifted them from a recent journal […]
